Everything Has an Endless Rhythm

2012 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

This piece calls to mind classic medical illustrations, but also illuminates the innate connection existing between organic forms and mechanical human creations, in this case the human respiratory and circulatory systems and a timepiece. The lungs pump air in and out of the body as a person breathes, a perpetual process that is second-nature to most; the heart keeps a steady beat while pumping blood throughout the body; and the pocket watch keeps time as the seconds tick by infinitely. All three work in different ways, but do so while keeping a steady, endless rhythm.
